Nonfiction Readers' Advisory

Book - 2004
Rate this:

The readers' advisory renaissance of the past few decades has focused almost exclusively on fiction. However, many readers relish nonfiction, not just for the information it imparts, but for reading pleasure. In fact, the concepts of genres and appeal features can be applied to nonfiction, just as they are applied to novels. This ground-breaking work addresses the issue of how readers' advisors can expand their repertoire and make better use of their library's collection by incorporating nonfiction into the RA transaction. Some of the most notable authorities on readers' advisory and reading promotion--Ken Shearer, Catherine Ross, Bill Crowley, Connie Van Fleet, Alma Dawson, Duncan Smith, and others--will contribute their insights on the ramifications of this fascinating new arena of readers' advisory.
